82 gl 1100/ Do they sell new wiring harness ?

Postby bobtail18 » Mon May 30, 2011 11:46 am



Well I've been trying to find an electrical short in the headlight circuit. What I've found is truly dismaying. I have the false tank off and the headlight out and the whole wiring bundle is just a patchwork of disconnected leads, insulation off wires, cross soldered wires. Many of the colors don't match the diagrams. A real rats nest of a mess. Does anyone sell a new wiring harness? I don't have the time to work through all this mess and am thinking of parting the bike out. I just got it and the engine only has 50,000 miles.

Even when new it's a real rat's nest inside the fairing. I know they don't sell the harnesses as new, I do remember hearing about someone who was selling homemade harnesses for a while, but I did a search and can't seem to find where that was.

You may wish to contact a Goldwing specific salvage yard for a wiring harness.

you might try to call bent bike in Lynnwood, Wa. they have 2 aisles of honda parts & i remember seeing a section of wiring harnesses. now, you might have to see if someone there would dig thru & see if there is a gl1100 one, but there is a good chance that there is. just a thought.

When i was doing shopping for some parts of mine i saw some on ebay... i was close to getting me one but they didn't have the one i needed it. So check that place out might find something there for you.
